So yRoyal,

Can you tell us a bit more about your rules.......for instance if there is no stop when do you determine to close a losing trade? Perhaps when you get an opposite signal? Do you just press the reverse button? Is this the same for a winning exit? Just curious.

Thanks, Jeff

My Rules In Finer Detail :

1. I am a day trader. Dont carry positions overnight.

2. By Slower charts I mean those settings which capture the dominant trend or swings of the day.

3. Enter Long when a Blue bar appears after a down move. Entry ABOVE the high of the first blue bar.

4. Exit Long when a Red bar appears.

5. Enter Short when a Red bar appears after an up move. Entry BELOW the low of the first red bar.

6. Exit Short when a Blue bar appears.

7. Dont enter any new position in the last 30 minutes of the day, but continue open positions.

I have shown past six days action. 15 trades / 354 points profit

my 2cents in the always IN universe there is no losing trade. If one side is losing it means the other side is winning. The market is telling you which side you should be on.

Yes Cory. As traders we always intend to take very small profits and ESCAPE from the market.... why not turn the tables ?

Be always IN... now can the markets ESCAPE ? The big moves cant be missed !

Hey Record 100,

Can you tell us a little about these paintbars?

Thanks, Jeff

It is paintbar study that is intended to make bar colors the same in the trend. Very simple from programming prospective, if you consider all the paintbars available on this forum for the trend following they are all looks the same or very similar. I like this one because of the simplicity, I was using it in automated strategy. Recently I am not using paintbars in my trading, I believe you could read from the standard chart existence of the trend and pullbacks etc.

I also noticed in a few of your prior charts that a single bar can change color in a trend and then the trend continues. Do you change your position in a quick fashion when this type of thing occurs? Seems like you would if youre only signal is from a bar color change.

It happens rarely. Most of the cases when it happens, the subsequent bar doesnt cross the high/low of the previous bar. We take positions only above the high or below the low. So the signal is nullified.

Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez my friend

Just having fun. Louisiana has to me some of the best
food in the U.S. Just couldn't believe the crap they were
advertising at the fair this year. I see, DavidHP, you trade
the 6E. What time frame do you like the best? And yes
I'm a Yankee Coonass because I'm north of I-10. lol



I trade ES and 6E.
My timeframes for both are:
Weekly, to get a feel for where the market is going.
Daily, to take a closer looks at weekly and find major fib targets.
15min, to find today's trend/entry levels.
2-4 range to find the entry triggers.

Although I use templates other than the ones Jeff uses, I like to follow this thread because it let's me see what others are doing and they are some very good traders here at (formerly BMT).

In a few months we will be setting up for Mardi Gras, you should come down.

Again, thanks for all of your posts. I am so new at this and don't know half of what you guys know and wish I could have you along side of me everyday to make me a better trader. I am doing this full time because I have nothing else to do for income and this has to work. I only tell you this so you know how serious it is to me.

What I got from your thread so far is a better understanding of when or where to enter the market. Usually I feel pressure to get in because I don't want to miss a move. After reading your thread I think now I can see where to enter and let the market come to me and not feel like I am going to get left out. So, you have taught me patience and I have the shortest fuse. Doesn't make for good trading somedays!

As far as templates, I just felt like yours was easier to read and that you know alot more than I do, so I was just trying to piggyback on your knowledge. I know I am begging for your info and hoping you will be gracious enough and give me anything you are willing to share, so thank you in advance.

Thanks again for all of your information and teaching me to become a better trader.

I want to point out that, regardless how nice Jeff's AYN setworks work in a trend, you will still get hammered in a chop if you don't use something to help you to identify and avoid it, other indicators notwithstanding.

I find StepMA and Sharkband most helpful in this regard.

Johnny, I would suggest taking the above and posting it as a new thread in the Psychology forum.... there is lots to say/comment on... but this is not the place.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
